NZFACT Rebrands as the New Zealand Screen Association

Today, the New Zealand Federation Against Copyright Theft (NZFACT) has announced the change of its name to the New Zealand Screen Association.

The core mission of the New Zealand Screen Association is to advance the business and art of filmmaking and increase its enjoyment around the world by supporting, protecting and promoting the safe and legal consumption of movie and TV content across all platforms.

This is achieved through education, public awareness and research programs, in order to highlight to movie fans the importance and benefits of content protection.

Tony Eaton, Managing Director of the New Zealand Screen Association said; “Our screen industry creates content that tells our local stories and brings us stories from overseas that entertain us, educate us and bind us together. The New Zealand Screen Association will continue to work with local screen industry organisations to support the careers of emerging and established filmmakers, as well as promote an environment that supports, protects and promotes the safe and legal consumption of movie and TV content across all platforms”.
